Positive, inspirational stories rarely make their way on to the front of the sports page these days. The Charlotte Bobcats’ Bismack Biyombo’s tale of a night with a homeless stranger couldn’t knock off the rumors of a damning Dez Bryant video. Thankfully, good news, like good cream, rises to the top.
Bismack Biyombo Sumba doesn’t have the recognition of fellow Congolese countryman Serge Ibaka, but is equally committed to providing resources and assistance to the less fortunate in society.
One recent night in Chicago, Biyombo happened upon a homeless man in desperate need. He offered him a meal and ended up feeling incredibly blessed by the hours they shared. He told the story on his Instagram account:
Good morning people! Was Bless last night in Chicago to spent time with this great homeless person, who I so sleeping outside as I was walking around the city, he was cover with few things and I spoke to him and after we spoke, I ask him if he want it to get food and he said man I will love to but I can’t go into a restaurant. I ask him why? He said because of the way I’m dressing and the way I look.. I could believe it or no? But I want it to experience that myself, as we walk around the mall before we go get some food, officers had to ask if he was with me until we get to the restaurant!! The amazing thing is that I had a great diner and great time and some great conversation and what we did after is between God of this universe and I… This guy read books and is recommendation was this Book call the secret that going to be my next Book!! So people I will just ask you to help because you want to not because you have to.. Help build a better society, be part of something special!! God bless
Biyombo’s new friend recommended a book – The Secret – one of the most popular books of all time.
